San Francisco, Calif (PRWEB) June 28, 2010
OpenDNS, provider of the world's leading Internet navigation and security services that make networks safer, faster, smarter and more reliable, today announced that the Hockey Hall of Fame (HHOF) has deployed OpenDNS's cloud-based recursive DNS service to better manage its network security over multiple locations. The Hockey Hall of Fame, located in Toronto, was founded in 1943 as a tribute to those who developed and played Canada's favorite sport -- ice hockey.
At 57,000 square feet, the Hockey Fall of Fame is home to the Stanley Cup, memorabilia from important games and other fan favorites. While its physical collection is well protected, the Hockey Hall of Fame was looking to better manage its network security. Anthony Fusco, from the HHOF's Management Information Systems Department, said the organization chose to use OpenDNS after looking at a variety of options.
"Its reputation speaks for itself," Fusco explained, in why they HHOF chose OpenDNS to manage their Web content filtering and network security. With multiple locations, the HHOF needed a service that could manage both networks, without costing a fortune.
Using OpenDNS will help the Hall of Fame save money, which means they can spend more funds building out exhibits and programs that celebrate Canada's favorite sport. "It is absolutely made it easier to use OpenDNS' service to help us manage network security at our two locations," Fusco said.
